Still Wedding






I've made the leap back into wedding photography!

Not one that I took lightly... it requires me to be more of a planner (organized), and a bit of a gear-head. Neither of these things come naturally for me, but if I don't venture out of my areas of comfort, then I'll never grow, right?

So... thank you Lisa for having faith in me and for encouraging me to stretch myself!
You and Jamin are truly, lovely people and I felt blessed to try and capture that.




You were such a trooper, Lisa! It was quite cold and rainy, but you weren't phased by that... in fact, Jamin and I were more worried about you and your dress than you were.




Jamin's expression... hilarious.


I had so much fun seeing you two together, I can't imagine a better match of personalities.







The invitations and programs were made from Jamin's artwork! That. is. beautiful.


Lisa you are a beauty!





Pure joy on their faces!




Stunning.



Awesome.


Work it guys!


Beautiful girls.




So, I'm pretty convinced that this wedding party was about as fun as they get.


The sisters do their "mom-face".

I can't remember what started this fight, but it got pretty ugly!







I thought a baby was a pretty generous gift!


And whoever wrapped this has got skills.


THE prettiest flower-girls!







Calvin was ready to wallop them with this huge pile of leaves!


The leaf-toss was one of my favorite parts of the day, so colorful!








Ha-ha!


Careful...


I love it that the Father of the Bride and his brothers were playing cards at the reception!



Thank you Jamin and Lisa!
It really was a gift for me to be a part of your lovely day!
I am so excited for this new chapter in your lives, God is so good.

em, this post had to be ALOT of work. thank you for letting us see the beautiful pictures you took at lisa's wedding; she looks amazing. do you know if her dress is a maggie soterro? it looks like one. i love so many elements about this wedding, namely:
1) vividly colored bridesmaid's dresses
2) programs
3) leaf toss
4) pic of the bridesmaids fighting over bouquets
i bet you had a blast.
lisa, if you are reading this:
1) do you remember me?
2) congratulations!

I wish you would have done MY wedding, Emily. Gorgeous!

Gosh, thanks for all the wonderful feedback and for taking the time to look through all that, what a huge post! Although, when culling through approximately 1800 images... 60 some isn't too many. :)
Mindy! I don't know who the designer was... Lisa are you reading this? I had way too much fun, worried they have set the bar so high, that future weddings will just be eh. Just kidding, they will all be super in different ways!
Karen, thanks! I wish I could have photographed your wedding too... although I think my setup back in those days was a little purple camera I'd gotten through Avon. HA!

Too beautiful for words!! Made me tear up they were so awesome. Your work is amazing girlfriend! One am seems to work well for you :)

Lisa said...

This is Lisa. I just read these quotes! Sorry if anyone was waiting. The designer of the dress is Maggie Soterro! I did not even know that, I just got it at Reni's Bridal Boutique. It was the dress I liked most. :) I'm really sorry Mindy but I don't remember who you are... please let me know because it might just drive me crazy trying to figure it out. Thank you for all of your compliments on the wedding!
